Lighthearted Leaves - Pinkies Blog Hop



Thank you for joining us on another Pinkies Blog Hop! We're showcasing lots of gorgeous projects using products from the new Stampin' Up!® Autumn/Winter Catalogue. Simply use the buttons at the end of each post to keep hopping!
If you have arrived here from Sylvia's blog then welcome.

My projects today are based on a new Stamp Set called Lighthearted Leaves.


I was immediately drawn to this set, I think it's because  I love Autumnal colours, which fits this set so perfectly.  The current trend for colouring also works well, as the small little sections are perfect for colouring in with pencils or our marker pens. I can see a cute set of 6 stamped cards wrapped in ribbon with some colouring pencils making a perfect handmade gift for Christmas.

I used our new Archival ink pads for the stamping, which can be used for watercolouring as it does not bleed. It is available in Black or Grey.

Here is my first finished sample, making bookmarks and a matching card - you could leave them uncoloured for the recipient to finish.


  For my second sample, I used our inks and a sponge to create  a coloured background, onto which I stamped some of the leaf images. These were then cut out with the matching Framelits (called Leaflets). I created a ribbon slider tag, by using our new three way punch, matched with our Tag punch.

Finally, my daughter spotted that the little leaf design looked rather like Christmas baubles, so she helped me design this fun Christmas card.  I used our new twin ribbon pack in the matching colours to finish off.

 Which is your favourite? I'd love to hear your comments

    1. Thanks Tracy - it was one of those 'I must have....' sets as soon as I saw them in the catalogue. The leaves remind me of a popular Orla Keily design, especially in Pear Pizazz colours.
